Real want to sign Jesus

Real Madrid want to sign Gabriel Jesus in the summer.

The Spanish club are looking for a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema, and view the Brazilian as a prime candidate.

In fact, they came close to making a move for him a year ago, but were only prevented by a Spanish rule limiting them to three non-EU players in their squad. However, with Vinicius Jr now having qualified for a Spanish passport, that opens up a spot.

At 35, Benzema is viewed as approaching the tail-end of his career, although Jesus is versatile enough that he can play with, instead of him.

Arsenal, though, will not want to let Jesus, who they bought from Manchester City for £44 million.

Although he has scored just five goals and has season has been interrupted by the knee injury he picked up at the World Cup, he has had a huge influence on the team, and he, and Oleksandr Zinchenko, have also been credited with instilling a winning mentality in the Gunners.
